    I genuinely dont think we need to recruit any halves. Nor centers tbh. We have some good prospects coming through in both positions, so I'd rather wait for them and then see how we are looking at the end of next year.
    If we go out and spend big on both of these positions for next year then we may regret it if Averilo, Wakeham, Harper and Okunbour really step up next year.
    So I would rather we save the money and just see how things pan out next year.

    While i rate bellamy as the best coach in the nrl, i cant work out why the best 7 they have cant even make the side, i guess its to play phauzen at 1, but have 2 5/8,s who cant guide the side around.
    They made the gf last year with him, imo is equal to ben hunt but at half the price.

    It's funny, almost groundhog day. Folks didn't want Moses or Brooks because they were shit defensive halfbacks - now they're 2 of the best attacking halves who make their tackles at a decent clip.

    I'd say go for him if the price is right, be the first time we had two legitimate 7's in a while and the competition would be good for both of them.

    He needs bodies in motion, hole runners and options out the back. So no, haha.

    If I could have anybody from the storm it’d be papenheuzen (I’m sure I’ve spelt that wrong)

    Our style works well with foran. Foz is better on the left ,where he played at manly. Croft is right side and can play the dce roll i believe( roll as in dominant half but hasn't got dce ability)

    Cogger can be a good work in progress. Croft is ahead of cogger at this stage . The game keeps changing, bringing a running game for a 7 and 9 back in. That's where we struggle in both positions.

    I thought Papenhuyzen played well against Canberra. Agree about Hughes though, he doesn't seem that amazing as a number 7.

    Yeah he did.. but I just thought he was exposed a few times in their own 20... Canberra just couldn't capitalise because the whole Storm unit is so good at covering

    He was good but it’s a simply strategy he isn’t big. Easy to rag doll about if you can make sure a straight line gets him

    He is a poor mans cooper Cronk clone....... boring and lame. Why is this even a thread? Dogs are building something special. Get ready dogs fans.
